CreekKooler Portable Kayak Cooler 620 350 BassGrab

CreekKooler Portable Kayak Cooler

Often times I get to review products that are all competing against each other and the only differentiation is a new feature, color, or technology. That’s why it is awesome when a product like the CreekKooler comes along and it’s so different from what you would normally see that it’s just a blast to test out. I’ve seen floating coolers before but they have all been inflatable and not nearly this durable.

Plano Zipperless Z-Series Tackle Backpack

I never wanted to use a backpack for saltwater fishing because they aren’t usually waterproof and salt water quickly deteriorates the zippers if you don’t wash it down immediately. Plano has come up with a quick access zipperless tackle backpack that is great for gear storage and keeps you visible when wading through the backwater.

C-TUG Ultimate Kayak Cart

C-TUG makes one of the higher end kayak carts available and their design is definitely different than the normal metal tube frame with rubber tires found on most carts. The neon green pads and slick black frame really makes it stand out and it just looks like a solid cart all around. I had the chance to run this cart down some rocks, steps, and slopes with a 13′ kayak – see how it handles.

Scotty Rod Mounts

Kayak rod mounting systems on the market today are excellent and there are a wide variety to choose from due the increasing popularity of kayak fishing. A few things to look for are rigidity, adjustability, and accessibility when it comes to a holder for fishing rods. Scotty mounts consistently deliver on all three of these, and they have excellent bases that keep the rod holders very secure.

Assault Hand Paddle Review

It’s always fun working with smaller companies who have come up with a great fishing tool, and Backwater Paddles has done exactly that. The Assault Hand Paddle concept is simple – a paddle you can use with one hand that’s sturdy as a rock. The team at Backwater Paddle Company kept kayak anglers in mind when designing this hand paddle.
